We expect our investments to do more than earn a good return.
We believe that companies that manage environmental, social and governance (ESG) issues properly will be more financially sustainable and perform better over the long term.
Our investment managers take a range of factors into account when measuring the sustainability of an investment in a company or business, such as:
- environmental - greenhouse gas emissions, natural resource consumption, waste management and other opportunities to reduce environmental impact
- social - occupational health and safety, employee welfare and product safety controls for end consumers
- governance - conflicts of interest, transparency, risk management, regulatory compliance and director remuneration.
Responsible Investment Policy
Our Responsible Investment Policy sets out how TWUSUPER builds good ESG practices into our investment decisions.
Climate Change Position Statement
We recognise that climate change may represent strategic risks and opportunities for TWUSUPER and its members.
TWUSUPER is a signatory to the Australian Asset Owner Stewardship Code and supports its six principles.
TWUSUPER works with local and international organisations to benefit from and promote responsible investment.
One way that TWUSUPER can influence the behaviour of companies we invest in is through proxy voting activities.
